What fall foliage photo tips do these landscape pros have to offer?

In a variety of places around the world, it's foliage season and photographer Nigel Danson recently released a new video full of tips and tricks for improving your autumn photography.

One of Nigel's tips is to never leave home without a polarizer. It's always a good idea to have one for landscape photography, but Danson argues that it's particularly good for fall foliage photography because it reduces the reflections on the leaves and makes their colors pop a lot more. Another idea is to experiment with different lenses, perhaps even a longer lens. If you get a bit closer to your subject, Danson thinks you'll find more interesting details than you would if you were shooting wider.

If you aren't sure what to shoot, take your camera off a tripod - which you should definitely be using, if possible - and crank up the ISO to grab a bunch of test shots in the scene around you. When you find something that grabs you, get everything set back up, dial back the ISO and capture your shot. To see the rest of Nigel Danson's tips, watch the video below.

We have another video to share with you about fall foliage photography. This video comes from Gavin Hoey and Adorama TV. In Gavin's video below, he discusses how to capture shots while out in the field and then he discusses how to enhance the colors of your fall shots in Photoshop. Check it out below.
